Looks like we are going to be heading home tonight! Woo hoo! We thought the doc would keep us until at least tomorrow, but Emily is such a rock star that they are OK to let us go tonight. She has been doing well with her oxygen and heart rates. She has been tolerating her feeds too. So right now, she has no tubes or wires (other than the IV site). She still has some pain, but that is to be expected. She is actually struggling most with muscle spasms. They cause her whole body to tense and that is not fun!
continued to keep us on our toes with multiple diaper changes. We
have even seen some smiles and even better, heard some giggles. I think
she was flirting with her male nurse overnight because she was cracking
up for him at around 4am. The stinker! It has been great to see more
of the Emily that I know coming out today.
The doctor said that she is
really impressed with the progress that Emily has made in the past
couple of days. She really did not expect Emily to turn around so quickly. That is what happens when you underestimate my girl -
she WILL prove you wrong!
Praising God for working in my girl and
helping her to get this far. We have a long road ahead and are a bit
nervous about getting home and taking care of her on our own, but we
know that God will give us strength and wisdom to tackle what comes.
Thank you SO much for all of the prayers and words of encouragement
along the way!
